FilmDistrict and TriStar have revealed the first full trailer for the upcoming period, action disaster epic Pompeii from director Paul W.S. Anderson (Resident Evil franchise) and starring "Game of Thrones" star Kit Harington in the lead role alongside Emily Browning, Jared Harris, Kiefer Sutherland, Jessica Lucas, Carrie-Anne Moss, Adewale Akinnuoye-Agabaje and Paz Vega.

Set in late summer 79 A.D., Pompeii revolves around the slave (Harington) of a shipping tycoon who dreams of the day he can buy his freedom and marry his master's daughter (Browning). What the slave doesn't know is that she's already been promised to a corrupt Roman senator, while he's been sold to another owner.

Just when things can't get any worse, Mt. Vesuvius erupts with the power of 40 nuclear bombs. But the slave is trapped on a ship headed for Naples, separated from his love and best friend, a gladiator who is trapped in the city's coliseum. As fire and ash destroy the only world he's ever known, the slave is determined to get back and rescue them.

The first trailer essentially painted the film as Titanic meets Gladiator meets 300, you getting the same vibe from this one?

    Watching this trailer made me feel...plastic abs!!!! That's actually not fair as I haven't watched it yet, but that's all I can think of when I see that horrid shot of Kit Harington.

    It made me feel like I should do some sit ups and buy fresh body oil and leather.

    • Ian

      Or just buy some expensive prosthetics and hire a good makeup artist....

    It made me feel bad for Kit Harington, because he is getting stuck in bad roles like this.

  • Driver

    Like, like, like... Ah, I don't care.

    It made me feel very, very, very, very, very insecure about the level of fat on my body. And that I need a spray tan.

    Paul W.S. Anderson, man... He does try so very hard.

    Lots and lots and lots of gigantic wide shots full of CGI... Can't wait for the absolute numbness that will overcome me if this movie crosses my path.

  • TVjunkie

  • EPayneDDS

    So, "Gladiator" + "2012" = This pile of ash?

  • The Jackal

    Yeah, epic waste of money and time. Sad, this story deserved a quality film.
